As a trainer, I think women should focus more on their upper body when they go to the gym. Having a strong upper body is important because we use our back, arms, and shoulders every day during basic movements like pushing a door open or picking things up off the ground.
Since so many people have asked NASM-certified trainer Kelsey Wells about her shoulder workouts, she decided to share a few of her favorite moves on Instagram. “I train shoulders once a week combined with abs,” she explained in her Instagram caption.
If you’re a beginner, start with three to four sets of 10-12 reps. If you have experience lifting weights, complete three to five sets of 12-15 reps.
